Well there is a tonne of snow here in Edmonton, so this is the perfect time to start another exciting year for Blue Line Racing. Mike and have the newly wrapped truck and trailer on highway 2 heading south to compete in the annual Beat the Heat competition at the Strip in Las Vegas...

Yesterday was the long haul, it took us nearly 3 hrs just to get to Red Deer.

This was my view for the first three hours! Mikes truck needs some thermalblades!

Sorry it has taken me a while to update you on our experience at Mopars at the strip,

As usual it was a great opportunity to meet with other Law Enforcement Programs / Education based race teams that are all promoting the same message!

I wish I could say we rocked it there, but a couple of red lights and mis-dial cause all three cars to go out in the first round. Such is life... We got a whole bunch of track time and exposure:

We event took the time to take some team photos, I just wish we could have got some palm trees in the background!
